This year marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. There have been many exhibitions held in Italy this year to mark the occasion and honour the artist. Next month, I will give a talk on Da Vinci to members and guests of the Dante Alighieri Society. Anyone is welcome to attend. (More on date and venue shortly.)
